Hi, I'm Chris Becker. I'm a 50 year old comedian and writer living in Cedar Rapids., Iowa. Back in the day, I was a Hollywood stand-up comic/ comedy writer working at clubs such as the Improv, the Laugh Factory, and the now-defunct Ed Wynn Comedy Lounge at the L.A. Variety Arts Center. At that time I worked sign-up nights with folks you've heard of like Pauly Shore, and Michael Richards, as well as folks you should know about such as Paul Feig , Jeff Abugov, and the legendary Dylan Brody.

I left Hollywood after a short while to put my marriage back together, and to raise my son, but I never stopped writing or trying to make fun of anything and everything. As Mark Twain once said, "Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand."

I was a freelance humor columnist for awhile, then I co-wrote some plays that were actually produced. I wrote a lot of songs. I'm an ASCAP affiliated songwriter. Now I'm working on some more screenplays, I've done some background acting in a couple movies, andI just returned to the stage, doing stand-up at clubs here in Iowa.

Okay, enough of this introduction stuff... . It's time for Chris Becker to be Funny or Die!
